    Morning,

    I'm new on here, and am just about to make the switch from VW to Audi with my A3 that's on order.

    I've now been quoted build week 18. Does anyone know roughly when that would translate to delivery to me?

    Thanks loads,

    Chris.

    Chris - welcome, only as a guide mine took 2 and a half weeks from build to the dealers. Other peoples vehcles have been held up at Emden for longer than mine was. Hope this helps a little.

    Thanks Andy, that's a great help. And cheers for the welcome too.

    Can't wait to get behind the wheel now, on test drive the 1.4 TFSI COD 140 engine was a peach!!

    All the best,

    Chris.

    Mine was built on the 18th March, was at Emden for almost a month and still hasn't got to the dealers! So somewhere between 2 weeks and 2 months...

    I've been told I'm build week 18 and been told it's 5th May build with circa 26th May delivery (give or take a week). Welcome to the club!

    Mine was week 16 but moved to 17 which was odd. Either way I've been quoted mid May. My salesman noted to me they are getting cars within 7-10 days of getting in to the UK. Hope he is right.....

    Not sure where you live, but I'm in Kent. I bloody hope mine doesn't go to sheerness!! Sounds like a lengthy wait if so!!

    Well if I'd known, I'd have chosen a dealer who didn't ship in via Sheerness but hey ho, patience is a virtue (apparently!).

    Based on how I'm starting to feel I'd say it's definitely overrated.

    If your dealer is also in Kent it will almost certainly go through Sheerness.

    I got told today that there are delays at Sheerness due to amount of cars and availability of transporters. Probably due to it being the Easter holidays :(
